Is it possible to push back the auction date for a foreclosed property by declaring bankruptcy? How many times can this be done?
Have you asked your bankruptcy lawyer about this issue? They would be the one who would know the specifics of your situation and be able to best assist you.

My loan officer can not deliver loan at closing day, what do i lose if I switch to a new broker?
Any money that has been vested - say an appraisal fee or what not. You may need more time to close too. A new lender will need a few weeks at least.
